swing band

Tim Wells’ Hot Five evokes the sound of the swing era of the 30′s and 40′s. Whether it is gentle background music or a full dance band, we create an authentic sound using the finest swing players in the south of England.

As a duo or trio the band can create a sparkling atmosphere to perfectly complement a drinks reception or meal while as a quartet, quintet or even sextet the group heats up to get any party really swinging!

The band is available with our wonderful singer Abi, or as an instrumental outfit.
